Students who struggle in reading need teachers who are prepared to be successful. The use of explicit instruction is increasing; therefore, educators need increased knowledge of the framework. The purpose of this research project is to give teachers an overview of explicit instruction and then demonstrate how to use the instruction in various reading lessons. Through research, I examined explicit instruction and how its framework can be utilized in reading lessons to create better student outcomes. In all, I concluded that explicit instruction is an effective teaching method and we as teachers should become more comfortable implementing it in our classroom.
